    It’s here: a business building program for coaches created by coaches.

    This five-month business development program offers coaches exclusive access to experts and peers. Through workshops and cohort groups participants will grow their coaching business and build their network. The program begins with a free workshop in January called “Mastering the Fundamentals of a Successful Coaching Business.” From there, coaches have the opportunity to continue the with the paid portion of the program. 

    The program includes all the facets you need to grow a successful coaching practice. Learn about all the details below!


    Each month you’ll meet for a 2-hour workshop that includes 90-minutes of learning and 30-minutes for networking and space to develop your action items based on the material you just learned to help you build your business.


    You’ll meet again two weeks later to discuss the progress you’ve made on your actions items and for more networking. The purpose of the cohort working groups is to give you the support you need to build your business.


    To keep the conversation going between scheduled events, we’ll have a private Facebook group. After you register, you’ll receive a link to the Facebook group. Please allow 1-2 business days to confirm your access to the group.


    Your investment for this customized business building program for coaches includes the monthly workshops, cohort working groups, access to the private Facebook group, bonus material and the unique opportunity to build your coaching business alongside other coaches.
